    Maybe a prefab small wooden shed? Depends on the space you have and the dollars I guess.

    Good luck!

    Thanks, I don't have a lot of money to spend but maybe I can find a used one for sale. Just a hammer and nail girl. LOL

    That would be a good idea - I'm not even that good with a hammer - more like a hammer and thumb guy! [​IMG]

    build a box with enough square footage for the number of birds you want.......then inside the box, add a couple of roosts. then build a smaller box for them to lay eggs in. attach to the first big box.

    put roof on first big box.
